over the last couple of days or so I have been looking through some of
my old back ups when I found the source code for some old games I had
written years ago. Most of these were text games I had written while I
was a college student just learning Visual Basic, C++, Java, etc. My
thought is I could spend some time, clean up the source code, fix any
errors, or whatever then release them as free games. Is anyone
interested in some free text games for Windows, Mac, and Linux?
For the most part the kinds of games I am talking about here is basic
board and card games like Black Jack, Life, Tick Tack Toe, Checkers,
Hangman, etc. Basically, the same kind of games you can get from Jim
Kitchen or Spoonbill without the sound effects. Although, the difference
here is the majority of these were written in C/C++ so I can easily make
Windows, Linux, and Mac OS versions without any major changes in the
source code. If you want additional Sapi or Gnome-Speech support that
also is possible though I would think most of you probably would be fine
with just the text. Any thoughts on this?
